Title: Race Start delayed again..............

I was just boarding a plane at Bristol Airport yesterday at midday and I received a text from a fellow rower to say he´d just bumped into the race organiser from Woodvale in La Gomera and it was likely we wouldn´t be starting until Sunday 3rd January. F*cking great I thought - sorry Mum if you´re reading this one! Anyhow, I spoke to Rich very quickly as he was flying on a separate flight from Gatwick and we decided still to come out as we needed to start preparing ourselves again anyway.  
Rich and I had been following the weather back in the UK and I thought Tuesday 29th would be unrealistic with a 6m swell pounding us towards Africa wouldn´t be ideal! However, the race organisers fail to communicate with the teams before we travelled which really annoys me. We had the race briefing meeting this morning and it was confirmed that the race is being delayed again!
Anyhow, Rich and I are here now and we´ll make the most of it!  
More to follow soon
